Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Did GM reset the anti theft system in your car? If it is going off, it will cause the car to not start.

My cadillac 04 cts wont start. Thinks its the scurtiy feature. Any1 have a idea


Is the security light lit ? Car an pad lock symbol . If any of these are lit it is the anti-theft system . Does the engine crank over but won't start an run ? The anti-theft system will allow the engine to crank but not start , disables fuel injectors . If the anti-theft light is lit there are DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the theft deterrent module an or the ECM .
Does anything happen when you turn the key to the start position ?

Im almost sure that my anti theft system is stopping my 1998 chevycaviler z24 from starting do i need to take it to a gm dealer


If it were my car I would definitely take it to a GM Chevy dealer to have it checked out.

If the anti theft system has kicked in to stop the car being started you might find a security warning light on the dash.

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????


The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

1993 Buick Park Avenue we had a dead battery so we removed and charged it. Now the Car won't start and when I put key in the ignition the security light starts flashing


Any car with a Factory Anti-Theft System does this whenever battery power is lost. If your owners manual doesn't address this, you will have to contact a GM Dealer to get the system reset. Sorry!

The car runs for a few seconds and then stops. Then it won't start at all.


Normally when a GM runs for 5 seconds or less and then dies, it can be traced back to a failing Anti Theft Security system. This is very common on GM vehicles. Read this link and compare your symptoms to the ones listed. Also look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY when it wont start. If you see this light, then you KNOW that this is the problem.

Anti theft light comes on and car won't start for 10 mins. Today the car wouldn't start after 5 trys.


The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved:
  1. The chip-key
  2. The lock cylinder
  3. The TDM (aka the brain of the system)
if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the exact same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at http://newrockies.com and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!
